What are the size-fraction definitions for health-related sampling?
The health affects of particles are dependent on where they deposit in the respiratory tract. Particles that can be breathed into the nose or mouth by normal adults are called inhalable. Smaller particles that penetrate into the respiratory tract below the larynx are called thoracic. The smallest particles, the ones that are breathed deep into the alveolar region of the lung, are called respirable.
What do inspirable, inhalable and total particles mean?
The terms "inspirable" and "inhalable" mean the same thing and can be used interchangeably to represent the particles that enter the nose and mouth. The commonly accepted term by the ACGIH/CEN/ISO committees is "inhalable". "Total" particles refer to all particles that are suspended in the air, whether they can be breathed in or not. "Total" usually implies that no inlet conditioning devices have been used to classify the sample.
